The idea of time in Western culture has been developed following an idea of linearity: a run towards the future, characterized by faith in the idea of progress. This concept of time informed our ideas of development, success, society, and values. Nowadays society is registering a disruption from within, where alternative ideas of time are emerging. This also has as a consequence the reflection on meanings and values. Storytelling can play therein a relevant role, as it can facilitate the awareness of the disruption taking place in society and empower this shift, envisioning a narrative of the future which is not linear but rather inspired by different ideas of time.
